The Hinesville City Council approved a request to submit the 2019 Balance of State (BoS) Continuum of Care (CoC) Renewal Application to the Georgia Department of Community Affairs and the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) during a regular meeting Aug. 1. This will be for a funding consideration under HUD’s CoC program to continue the Community Development Department Homeless Prevention Program’s Rapid Rehousing Project. This project assists homeless individuals and families with securing housing.
The Council also approved the submission of two separate sets of grant applications to the Walmart Foundation’s Community Grant Program on behalf of the HPD and HFD for the purpose of buying supplies for the Citizens Academy, and to purchase StoveTop Firestops and fire suppression tools respectively.
A conflict concerning the voting district lines of homes located at 206 and 207 Cherry Hill Road was put off until after the 2020 census to determine where lines need to be redrawn.
There are multiple streets in Hinesville that are listed to be repaired, but the City Council suggested that this list be reevaluated. It was briefly discussed that this evaluation be done at an offsite workshop but no date or time was mentioned.
